“I didn’t deserve her…But I wanted her. I wanted to be the person she imagined me to be.”
I am a sucker for books about authors so when I saw the blurb for this one I had to buy it. Self-made billionaire meets author should make for some interesting reading…right? Well, not if you are Jack Willis. Jack Willis was a man that kept his private life, just that, PRIVATE. No-one knew anything about the man that built his fortune from nothing, was a revered man in his field and one of the most highly sought-after targets for gossip mags and journalists. Hoping to quell the curiosity surrounding himself, Jack hires a ghost writer to write his autobiography, however, not willing to cross those personal lines makes for extremely boring reading, but at least the ghost writer is a helluva lot more entertaining. Maggie Riley delivered a fun, cute read and whatever you do, click the link at the end to get the bonus chapter…sigh.
Libby Hanson was a refreshing character, she had that naturally bubbly, infectious personality and was as laid back as they came. People could take her as she was or not bother at all, what you see is what you got. Libby was honest, didn’t have a negative bone in her body and was loved by everyone, except Jack Willis…or maybe not. Libby was a crafty woman, knitting, macramé etc were her forte and what she normally wrote about. When her best friend sets her up for this interview she doesn’t know what she is signing up for, could this be the best or worst career move that she has ever made?
“…Someone who ignored all my rules. Ignored all my orders. Someone who did what she felt was right, even when I tried to block her at every turn. She knew me.”
Jack Willis was intriguing from the very beginning, while my suspicions about his private life were correct I admired his reasoning behind wanting to keep them private. Jack was a fantastic boss, everyone loved him, he knew the company inside out and from the bottom up. Jack was a hands-on boss trying to deliver something he loved while protecting the environment. Jack’s business ethic was admirable, as was the man. I simply adored him.
The chemistry between these two from the beginning was always simmering, but the more time they spent together the more the spark ignited and while this is a little bit instalove, it didn’t really feel that way. There were a few editing issues which were a little distracting in the beginning but they seemed to dry up as the book progressed so please do not be put off. This was my first read by Maggie Riley and it won’t be my last. Thoroughly entertaining, totally engaging and really enjoyed this authors writing style.
This story is full of sweet moments between these two as they navigate their relationship. Jack ends up needing a good, swift kick in the butt, but he also does exactly what he needs to do once he realizes. I absolutely ADORED these two & getting to tag along in their story. AND! Be sure you sign up for the extra scene - it's adorable & like the cherry on top of the story. Two thumbs way up!
Jack Willis needs to find a ghost writer to write his story, this book may have his business all over it but it doesn't reflect the man behind the business- which he is okay with. Jack wants his private life private and will do anything he has to to keep it that way, even if it means pushing a chance at love aside. He never expected that the curvy woman who he has hired as his ghost writer would do anything other than what he wants written. Jack finds himself not being able to get her off his mind, but will he be able to let down his guard and show her aside of him only a few people know?
Libby Hanson can just put a smile on my face just with thinking about her and her love of reading, writing and crocheting. She sounds perfect and that is what Jack thought the minute her interviewed her, that's until she decides the book she is hired to write needs more depth. Libby finds that Jack's story needs a human interest to grab the readers and help make this a bestseller. It what she believes this gorgeous man deserves, but he is not willing to open up. Jack is willing to open up with his business, some of his employees, his bed but not his heart. Will Jack's pride and need to keep his life a secret push Libby away brokenhearted?
I loved everything about Start Me Up, it had me wanting to read fast enough to get to the end and wishing for that HEA. This is another great read by Maggie Riley for me, I found it to be sexy, funny, frustrating at times and it definitely pulls on the heartstrings. I would give it 5 Stars for the cover alone, seriously this is a 5 Star read from me.
